More acts have been announced for this year's Download Festival, augmenting what is shaping up to be one of the biggest hard rock festivals seen across Europe in years.

US garage rockers The Mooney Suzuki, British band A and Japan's hardcore techno rockers Mad Capsule Market have all been added to the main stage, joining headliners Black Sabbath, System Of A Down, Feeder, Velvet Revolver, Slipknot, Slayer and Billy Idol.

Making an appearance on the Snickers second stage are InMe, Apocalyptica, Underoath, Lordi, Shadows Fall and Finch, among others. Flogging Molly will also be playing the event, an Irish-American punk act which features wrestling superstar Chris Jericho on vocals.

Snickers have launched a competition that will see one unsigned band will be making the journey to the festival and playing on the Snickers stage alongside other acts. For more information go to snickersunsigned.co.uk.
